For an art fair in New York’s most exclusive resort getaway, Scope Hamptons 2006
, July 14-16, 2006, seemed awfully far from the beach. The second annual installment of the event traded last year’s cozy headquarters at Southampton’s Hampton Hall (see Un-Hampered
, July 19, 2005) for the more remote, much larger East Hampton Studios -- a hanger-like space located off of a wooded back road, about an hour from the water, to accommodate an expanded roster of exhibitors, growing to 56 this year.
